Go Ahead and Hate

I don't mean to sound conceited, but I really love being this fabulous. You know there are some black women who have no damn class at all! These women are just tactless and tasteless. Yet they are the same ones who swear up and down they are so lady like! HA.

As I am on my lunch stroll around the neighborhood, I made an order with my favorite restaurant Chipotle to have my usual order made. It takes about fifteen minutes for them to complete your order. By the time I take the “long way” to Chipotle my food is usually ready. When you order your food online around the 12-2 lunch time frame, you don’t have to wait in the long line that usually flows out the doors onto the sidewalk. My mother taught me manners, so when passing through a group of people, I always say excuse me. So as usual I say excuse me one of the three sistas standing in line, since she is the one blocking my way. Now since I am a bit under the weather my voice is quite hoarse and a lot raspier than normal, so sexxi know. So I spoke up a little when I said “Excuse Me.” The woman, whom I will name NoTaste@ ALL looked at me up and down, rolled her eyes, and turned back to her friends to continue with her conversation. So I promptly said “Excuse me” again in which she ignored, and said to her friends, I don’t see the sun outside, do you?

Ok, Look chick. I was about to get real ignorant. I rock my sunglasses whenever the heck I feel like it. Inside. Outside. Sunny. Cloudy. Breezy. I don’t feel well and I want my food just like you. What I wanted to say was it looks like you have already had too many “two piece biscuits and fries” from Popeye’s so perhaps you need to be next door at the health food store… but I didn’t. I also wanted to say just cuz I am easy, breezy, beautiful, cover girl material and you are sloppy, unkempt, last fall’s season’s attire from NY and Co. two sizes too small please learn to shop for your size woman! But I didn’t. The Lord, blessed me with patience so I paused and took a deep breath. I taped her and said “can you get out of my way please” in most infamous Richmond accent (a lil hood and a lil southern). Finally she huffs and puffs at me and moves out of my way. I go downstairs to the pickup window, and wa-la! my food is ready. I pay for my meal and instead of walking out the side door, I make it a point to go back up and out through the front door again passing the woman who so vehemently detested the fact that I had passed her in line.

Do you know that heffa was staring me up and down! You know the “who does she think she is look” with her hands on her hips and her neck rolling to her friends talking about how ignorant it is to wear sunglasses when there is no sun. I almost laughed in her face. It’s hard to be in the presence of a real woman, I understand boo boo, but could you turn the hate up just a bit more cuz I haven’t received this much hateration in awhile. It feels good. Are you upset because you left your sunglasses at home today? Or did you just want your burrito before anyone else. Greedy Heffa! HA HA HA HAAAA! All I could do was chuckle with moms on the phone about what went down. She heard the whole ordeal from the phone. While she had just barely made it through the door I was well on my way out of the door, food in hand and ready to enjoy my meal.

Black in America Part II

Soledad O'Brien is back again with a CNN Special: Black in America Part II

PREMIERES JULY 22 & 23 8PM ETThis July, CNN continues its investigation of the most challenging issues facing African-Americans with "Black in America 2." Soledad O'Brien reports on people who are using ground-breaking solutions to transform the black experience.

Tackeling Education in Black America
Former Secretary of State and Retired Gen. Colin Powell says keeping American kids in high school is the most important fight of his life. He says the drop-out rate in this country is a “catastrophe.” The problem is worse among minority students; nearly 50 percent do not complete high school on time.

Post your thoughts!
Why aren’t our black kids staying in school?

Catching E-Feelings

E-Feelings = Internet Feelings.

The following scenerios are when someone is catching e-feelings.... Feel free to add your two cents
Discussion Topics
If you are having a discussion topic and someone disagrees with you, it's ok to battle it out for awhile... even joke back and forth with each other. But to threaten their life and flood their e-mail with hate mail... you have officially caught e-feelings.

So homegirl looks better in a bathing suit than you do, or she is the powerhouse diva of the recording industry, perhaps she is a successful CEO.... don't hate on her lifestyle simply because it ain't you boo-boo... go to the gym and get that divalicious body you always wanted and shed those e-feelings!

Let me go even further...

Tagged Photos & Captions
PEOPLE LET US NOT HATE when we are not tagged in a photo or the caption doesn't include that it was your baby sister's fith birthday party. It is probably just an honest mistake especially since most of us are posing up a bunch of photos at a time! SHEESH! why don't you go tag yourself! UGH!!!! Let go of your E-feelings!

Blog Posts
In the event you want to post a comment on a blog post and you want to "educate" someone about whatever the blog topic is, let's all use common curtesy and respect. No need to call someone out of their name because they want to show their behind on the computer. Fools will be fools. Just state your opinion and continue to read for entertainment purposes... which is why most blogs are created. No need to get personal! Laugh and Move On... Let's not get into e-feelings MMKAY!

Friend Requests
So that charming young woman or man doesn't want you to be his/her friend. Stop nagging them about it and keep it moving! SHEESH!! No need to send 100+ messages in a day to simply see when/if they will accept you as a friend! Your persistantcy is irritating and probably the reason they haven't befriended you... let go of your e-feelings!

So you sent someone an e-mail stating your personal feelings about them, and they have yet to respond. Matter of fact you know they have read it and are ignoring it. Perhaps you are just sending an e-mail to someone for the first time and are awaiting a response? In any scenerio let's not get testy and "ignorant" seriously! I know you are just waiting for a response, but try and be patient. That person is NOT REQUIRED to respond to you. Those 16,000 e-mails you sent from anonymous e-mail addresses that you created to see if he/she would respond are unnecessary! Relationships go through changes. If it's meant to be it will, if not, you know his/her one flaw... they never respond! Let's not catch e-feelings.

Do you swear you have a man/woman but yet you have never met this man/woman in person but you guys talk all day everyday over the internet... yup you guessed it... e-feelings! That she might be a 13 year old kid. Let's get real!

Masking Who You Are
Is your screenname something vulgar or repulsive but yet you yourself got voted most likely to succeed? Better yet do you claim to be this suave romantic person... or this cyber space tough guy/girl... You have e-feelings... just be yourself!

Playing Computer Games
Win or Lose it's just a game people! Let's not go ranting off at people because they beat you at extreme checkers... chuck up the loss and let's practice good sportsmanship! Don't get caught up in e-feelings

Facebook Status
*sigh* I almost don't want to put this out there... but I will! A person's Facebook status is whatever they want it to be. Whether it is a place to put a reflective thought, an ignorant statement to generate responses, a question, or a statement/declaration it is their status... Let's not get all touchy feely kuz you feel betrayed. It may not even be about you boo-boo! Let go of your e-feelings

It is MY-SPACE! Not YOURSPACE or OURSPACE or THEIRSPACE or US-SPACE.... it is MYSPACE!! Which means I can put up whatever the heck I want and be satisfied. So don't get madd you aren't in my top friends, or you aren't in my mafia group! Ugh... you and your e-feelings

p.s. why do people ask you 92 questions on facebook and/or myspace when all if not most answers can be answered when you read my profile... oh wait! People don't read!

Personal Information
Now if you want to go ahead and put your personal information out there and air your dirrty laundry then you can't get madd when someone comments on it! NO NO NO! See once you put yourself on blast, it becomes public information and up for grabs for whomever wants to exploit it, laugh at it, joke about it, etc. So the next time you want to put quarter nekked photos up with your goodies all exposed, or leave a long winded response on your boo boo's wall about last night rendevouz.... just remember your e-feelings!

Also, If you put someone on blast and air out their personal information, don't let me catch you catching e-feelings when your dirty draws are swinging from the rope as well. Eye for eye. Tit for tat! It's all very childish but you know the games people play nowadays! Be be bigger person and admit your flaws... that you were wrong for putting their business out there... swallow your pride and move on... and leave them with the e-feelings!

Good Afternoon Bloggspace!

My name is Shea Oliver, but call me Roxci Heart™. I am a twenty something year old phenom (well in my head) hailing from the mid-atlantic region of the United States. I currently reside in Columbia, Md and commute daily to my banking job in Washington, DC. Believe me, most days I hate that daggone commute. Here, you will find the chronicles of my life... my transformation from a young woman into a blossoming career driven woman... and oh yeah working on my lady skills (b/c I am so rough around the edges). I'll try and post everyday, but the reality is it may not be possible. I hope you enjoy. There is something on here for everyone!
